    As I say in the title of the thread I have the following problem with my install of leopard that started to happen suddenly without any specific reason as fas as i can say... I cannot open a folder while holding another folder or file above the folder i want to open... I tried to repair permissions but it didnt make any difference..

    Any ideas why this happens? Or a way to fix it?

    Thanx for ur time...

    Is it still enabled in the Finder Preferences?

    Perhaps, the delay was re-adjusted too slow after the install.

    I got so ticked off with Folders popping open when I slowed down over a Folder I turned it off. Now I just Tap the Space Bar when over the folder I want. Now I don't have folders popping like fireworks all over the place.. :D
